There Mutilated Soldiers of Italy Are Housed and Taught Some Means of Self-Support. The war has turned the pnlaeo of the Bourbon kings of Naples into a home for mutilated soldiers. Around the exquisite marble tuble where the guests of the "Itol Soiell" of Naples dined In the garden on hot summer nights the ladies In powdered head dress and panier skirts, the men with lace at their sleeves and embroidered coats today are gathered the pitiable fragments of humanity that war has left In its wake. There are neither candles nor massive sjlver, neither sweetmeats 'nor rare wines. The Ital ian government allows 70 cents pet day for their lodging and mainten ance, and food is high In Naples. The marble table on warm days In the gardens Is the recreation center of the inutlluted, In their worn and faded uniforms. Before each Is nn oblong curdboard placard, some of whose spuces are numbered. One of the men (he must be one of those who have lost a leg, for the one-armed cannot do the trick) shakes a basket-bottle and turns out a numbered counter, In the sing-song Neapolitan dialect, he cries the number. The one whose placard bears It, covers the space with a bit of glass. Whoever covers all his spaces first wins a cent from each of the others. Those who have no hands at all have grown wondrously skillful at flip ping their bits of glass onto the placard by means of a bent pin stuck In the empty sleeve. This is recreation. There are also hours of work. Once sumptuous chnmbers of the royal palace have been turned Into schoolrooms, In the month that the hospital has been run ning. In one, those who wish are taught tailoring, In another shoemnk- Ing the legless naturally, for one must have two hands to make shoes and clothes. Those who have lost an arm are taught telegraphy or type writing. But many of the latter must begin farther back than that, nrtd learn to read and write first. For rending and writing in southern Italy ore not common accomplishments, so there Is a schoolroom a primary schoolroom, where the alphabet and multiplication table figures on the blackboard In front of these grown children who have known only to give an arm or a leg to their country. And nn arm or a leg to these simple peas ants Is livelihood their own and their families. Which Is why some do not study. They are suspicious. Mutilated, they are entitled to a government pen sion, nnd they are afraid that when they have learned a new trade by which they can live, the government will say: "You no longer need help make your owq living." So they sit all day In the sunlit, royal garden, with Its faience flowerpots marked with fleur de lys, and watch the chang ing lights on the bay of Naples, and think of what life used to' hold for them before the war came to change It utterly. Popular Superstitions. The loss of nn engagement ring is considered by many to be the climax of ill luck and equivalent to a super natural sign forbidding the girl ta mnrry the mnn who gave the ring. It is comm6nly considered unlucky for a girl to marry a man whose sur name begins with the same letter as her own. The old couplet says: "Change the name but not the letter, mnrry for worse and not for better." The superstitious girl does not watch her sweetheart out of sight, as this portends that the meeting will be the last one. If a girl has several admirers and wishes to know which she loves the best she. plucks a rose and names each petal after an admirer. Then the petals are thrown Into a stream, nnd the one which dlsoppears last is the favored suitor. Monarchies and Nobility. Monarchy Is unfavorable to the growth of an hereditary nobility. A king's policy must be to weaken the nobles lest some day they should be come his rlvnls. In the reign of the English king, Henry III, Simon de Montfort and other militant noblemen fought the monarch and, on one occa sion, took him prisoner. Even an ab solute monarchy, while it gives the "nobles" political status, denudes them of political power. It's an III Wind, Etc. "Turned you down, did you sayl Well, old chop, it's better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all." "Yes, better, Indeed," replied the re jected one. "Better for the post office authorities, the florists, the messenger boy, the confectioner, a dozen wait ers, twice as many taxi drivers, the jeweler nnd half the theaters in town !" New York Times. Just Happened So. "Mrs. Olithers used to be a soulful creature." "Still, she had common sense enough to marry a good provider," "Well, yes. The match turned out all right, but I wouldn't give her too much credit for that. She never would have fallen in love with GUthers if hi hadn't been a star footbaU player." Morning Dress of Two Fabrics i V r - I St. Ml U US ( ., H ; M 1 .v.;. . . t rr-rz ' - - ' A fell 1 M i ! t At leost two fabrics, or two patterns In one fabric, nre combined In the ma jority of new blouses nnd dresses, for the sake of variety. Much to the satis faction of designers, by this 'means colors are enhanced In value and the decorative importance of pockets, col lars, 'cuffs nnd belts is lncrensed. lie sides It gives opportunity for the ex ercise of Individual taste and Ingenu ity. Fabrics are associated In pairs that hnrmonlze particularly well, ns net with taffetn or net with luce, silk or sotln with georgette crepe or chiffon, satin with velvet nnd satin with soft wool materials. The new silk mate rials -for summer wear are made in plain and figured patterns that are used together, or two plain colors in the same silk nre combined, as in the morning suit shown in the picture, and cotton goods are managed in the same wny. For the woman who prides herself on her resourcefulness nnd economy, this combination of materlnls and col ors offers endless opportunities. Many an old dress by the addition of a new material, In the hands of n clever man ager, comes out for a second season of usefulness, n triumph -of good art. The shirt and blouse shown in the picture are made of u sports silk In two colors. The suit Is a model that is used for sports wear nnd for the simplest morning suits that do much good service In the country, nmde of cotton or linen goods. " The skirt is made In a darker cblor tluin the blouse nnd Is plain with its fullness laid in plaits. The blouse is plain except for a square emplacement of the material at the front, set In with piping. This is' finished with very small buttons. A long, narrow girdle of the material hardly defines the waistline, and it Is looped over at Hie front. The dark material or the skirt Is used for the Stiffs and the square patch pockets nnd small buttons, like those at the nock, finish the cuffs. The col lar, nlso, is of the dark material. Hardly nny of the popular one-piece frocks nre constructed of just ouo ma terial, and in sheer, soft goods lovely effects result from the uso of one color over another.

The old-fashioned reticule is recalled by the finish of the sash ends and the fine, knife-plaltod frills seem nn echo from the past. Happy the artist who can add re membered charms by by-gone days, along with others that are new and original, to the gown of today. This frock Is Interesting because It is pret ty ond original and because it presents good ideas for remodeling an old dress. The model ns pictured is made of gray crepe meteor having rather large, figured disks In self-color, broended over Its surface. The figures are wide ly scattered and hardly visible. The skirt Is plain with n wide hem turned up on the right side. A frill of the material, made of very fine knife plait ing is set under the top edge of the hem. A skirt that needs to be length ened might have a wide piece of ma terial set on nt the bottom, and this wotild need to be just twice ns wide as the additional length required. It need not be of the same pattern or ma terial as the skirt, but the narrow plaiting should be; and the frock should be kept all In on6 color. The blouse, with peplum, is wonder fully well designed, with the fullness taken up by two rows of shlrrlngs on the shoulder. The shoulder seam it lengthened and the blouse cut to nc complish a high neck nt the buck, with the throat open and filled In by extra frills of crepe. It opens all the way down the front nnd is gathered Into a narrow belt at the waistline. This Is covered by a soft crushed girdle of thn crepe meteor finished with a knot and two hanging ends at the front. The ends of the sif.sh are rounded and the turned up hems, edged with frills, have the uppeurance of pockets or bags. ' The Newest Decoration. The spring glove shows' u deol ot stitching and embroidery, and the new est coi'uttoii for frocks and blouses is a running itltch put In with sewing silk, several colors being used In closely set lines. The colors have nothing to do with the shade of silk used for sew ing up the seams of the costume; silk for this purpose invariably , matches Uie material. Wooden Beads Trim Hats.

COOK 2012 Main St., Kansas City, Mo Canadian Government Aptrnt ffif CHINESE MILITARY TACTICS Celestials Planned to Trip Up Foes, Throw Water in Their Faces and Then Cut Off Their Heads. At the beginning of the, Chlno-Japa-nese war, snys a contributor to the Wiishington Star, one of our military nttaches saw a Chinese regiment take the field nt a review and go through n very curious performance. The soldiers carried long bamboo poles like fishing rods, and with these they rushed at one another, yelling wildly and making very queer gestures and grimaces." "What's the game?" asked the Amer ican. , "That regiment," a Chinese general answered, "is one of our very oldest. It Is now practicing a form of assault that dates from prehistoric times. The Idea Is to trip the enemy up with the long wand, throw water In his face and, In the midst of his bewilderment at this extraordinary treatment, to cut off his head." YouttVs Companion. Not the Usual Kind. "Old Gadabout's return to his native heath doesn't match up with the usual traditions surrounding the homecoming of a globe trotter." "So? How is that?" "Oh, he was gone long, but he came back short." A reflector concentrates the heat at the top of n new electric cook stove. One Too Many. Mr. Bruce Burton, editor of Every Week, was describing the mentnl trepi dation of a friend of his who was mak ing his first public speech. AVhen he got up to speak the audi ence seemed to him like the result of a tost n wife tried on her husband who came home early one morning from a banquet where there had been a quan tity of some unknown beverage. The wife, who found her fears liad been realized, placed two chairs fac ing each other, sat down In one and applied the stnre ter.t, looking upon the inebriated one with a cold, Used stare. " 'I'll tell yon all about it, my dear,' he hiecuped, "but that woman In the other chair looks so much like you I can't tell which Is which." Why He Subscribed. A collector of subscriptions for the brass band fund once came ncross a farmer who was noted for his mean ness. To his surprise the farmer at once consented to subscribe fully as large a sum as any he had yet re ceived. "Mr. Hnrdfist," he said, addressing the fanner, "you nre surely very fond of music to give so much." "Oh, yes," said the farmer; "they're grand for scaring the crows from mn 'tntles when they're practicing nn' I'm grateful." Not Enough to Hurt Him. "Did he learn any Latin In college?" "Not enough to Interfere with his slang."
